Preceptors — two or three per class — are Truman students who assist the faculty in the class room and work with students in their class. The preceptors live in the residence hall and assist the Co-Activities Directors' during the morning, afternoon, and evening activities.
All preceptors are nominated by a JBA faculty member to assist in their course and are interviewed individually by the Dean and the Director of the Academy. Before the beginning of the JBA session, preceptors are trained by the professional staff, receive certification in CPR and First Aid, pass a van-driving test administered by Truman’s Department of Public Safety and complete background checks and are fingerprinted. Preceptors report to their faculty member for academic responsibilities and to the Director for all other duties.
